As parents, we tend to think once the kids are safely into secondary school, our school searching days are over, however, what if we were here to tell you they’re not... Post 16 education does not have to be linear and you do not have to follow a school "all-through". If you do, you are making a choice...

Whether you’re new to the UAE or simply thinking about changing curricula now the GCSE results are in for 2017, for these final two important years, there’s really never been a better time to ‘shop-around’ for the best post-16 education option to suit YOUR child.

Yet, less than a decade ago, things were very different. Limited options and a lack of availability meant many parents in the UAE were forced to send their children back to the UK/US/Europe for their post-16 study.

Today, however, the education landscape has changed for the better. There are now many good schools offering all manner of A Level subjects, IB Diploma options, IB Courses and BTEC programmes.

Whether your child has achieved significantly better (or worse) marks in their MYP/GCSE exams than were expected or their current curriculum simply isn’t catering to their needs anymore, the great news is, you can now apply for many of the UAE’s top post-16 educational offerings.
